Man-Flu Lurgyitis

Well, it had to happen – Man Flu! After months of shielding, isolation and generally being careful, Morgan had to go back to school. Sure enough, within a week he had a bit of a cold so had a day off sick.  For some reason, despite being generally fit and healthy I always seem susceptible...

The Lockdown Continues

We are still in lockdown here in Wales but some aspects of the restrictions have been relaxed today. We can now meet people from other households – as long as it is people from one single household, it is outside and we stick to the 2m social distancing rule. We can now drive locally to...

Back on the Water after Lockdown

At the start of Lockdown, I was still going out paddling as there was no official guidance or regulations not to. I was of course playing it safe and staying well within my capabilities so as to reduce the risk of having to call on the emergency services. But a lonely paddle on the sea...

More Days in Lockdown

Self-Isolation The Coronavirus lockdown continues. Anna has now had a letter for the Welsh Health Authorities to say that she in in a higher risk category and should therefore be ‘properly’ self-isolating for 12 weeks. That means not leaving the house for anything and either making sure the others in her household are also isolating...

Garden Retreat

At least we are still allowed out into our garden during the Coronavirus lockdown. The weather has been pretty good for it too. 9 days without rain and counting means that the floodwaters have receded and I’ve been able to do a bit of tidying up out there. Hedges and taller shrubs have been cut...

Lockdown on the Beach

Last weekend no one seemed to be listening as it was busier than a Bank Holiday weekend here, but the message is now getting through it would seem. For us, it isn’t really...

Up the Dyfi

Making the most of my One Excursion per Day With the Coronavirus lock-down in full effect, we are only allowed one excursion outside to exercise each day. I thought I’d make the most of it today. The weather was forecast to be really nice. I’d already done lots of University work from home on Monday...

Socially Distanced Intervals in the Sunshine

Today’s Socially Distanced surf ski session in the sunshine consisted of eight 0.25 mile intervals with 0.25 mile recoveries between them. The intervals were pretty tough at times so there was some sweating and dribbling involved but I was miles from anyone else with the whole of Borth Bay to myself so that wasn’t a...

Self-Isolating in the Garden

You saw my attempts at social distancing yesterday with a nice surf-ski paddle on the sea miles from anyone. Luckily we can self-isolate in the garden too. It was feeling quite Spring-like out there over the weekend. The sun was shining, I mowed the lawn for the first time this year and there was quite...

Social Distancing on the Sea

How’s this for Social Distancing. Miles from anyone and not a soul in sight. Just me, my boat and I! There was quite a stiff breeze blowing though so things were a little choppy in places. All good fun though and a way to stay sane in these times of uncertainty. Followed by some gardening,...
